Departmental Programs and Opportunities

The University is a member of the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome, and majors are encouraged to study there for one semester. The James M. Fourmy Jr. Scholarship is awarded annually to a deserving and qualified graduate of this University for graduate study in classical languages. The Charles M. Binnicker Endowment Fund for foreign study of classical languages provides aid to our students who wish to study abroad.

The Writing Center

The Sewanee Writing Center, located on the main floor of du Pont Library, provides objective peer support to Sewanee students who seek assistance with their writing projects. The student tutors represent a wide range of majors, and they can help you at any stage in the writing process, including topic development, rough drafts, final drafts, and revisions. For the best results, we urge you to bring a copy of your professor's written instructions when you come.
